BREAKING NEWS:Former Leeds United manager is one of the favorites to succeed……….

Following the firing of Michael Beale, Jesse Marsch, the former manager of Leeds United, is one of the early favorites to take over at Scottish Premiership team Rangers.

Rangers released a statement saying that Beale’s “results this season have fallen short of what everyone connected to Rangers would expect” after a 3-1 home loss to Aberdeen on Saturday.

Rangers started the Scottish Premiership season with four victories and three losses, which put them in third place after the loss to Aberdeen. Although St Mirren are above them in second place with 15 points, they are already seven points behind Celtic.

Marsch is the third favorite at 7/1, and Marcelo Bielsa, former favorite for Leeds, is fifth at 17/2. With the goal of aiding Uruguay in its quest to qualify for the 2026 World Cup in Canada, the United States, and Mexico, Bielsa inked deal with the South American country earlier this year. Marsch, meantime, has been jobless since Leeds fired him in February as result of dismal run of results; the Whites were ultimately relegated later that year. He managed 37 games during his brief tenure at Elland Road, winning just 11, drawing 10, and losing the remaining 16. He spent little under full year in command there.

Upon leaving Leeds he said in March: “I’ve taken some time out for myself over the last couple of months and it’s been a good chance to reflect on aspects of life while in Leeds.

“I’m very proud of our achievements like staying up in 21/22 and when I look back on my time at Leeds, I’ll think of that with great pride.

“I’m also grateful to have worked with a great group of players and staff and to have met some fantastic people in Yorkshire. I’m taking some time to consider the right next step but until then, I’ll be enjoying time with family & friends.”

Following his dismissal at Elland Road, the former Leeds manager was on the verge of accepting the posts at Southampton and Leicester City but ultimately declined both offers. He last appeared on television during Newcastle United’s Champions League match against AC Milan, while he was employed by CBS Sports, last month.
